Join us at the

RISE Troops Challenge - BEND

October 17, 2020 in Bend, Oregon


Wanoga Sno Park

Bend, OR

starts at 8:30am

RISE Challenge Events is a series of themed obstacle races in a variety of locations.

Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has forced us to postpone the race. However, we adapt and ovecome, with a new date, October 17, 2020. It is still at Wanoga Sno Park. The theme is still the same, with extra measures for COVID-related safety. We will be releasing very small heats, offering sanitizer, wiping down equipment between heats.


RISE Troops Challenge is based upon real military tasks and challenges. The theme of this year is paying our respects to those who gave all. This includes our military, first responders, health care workers, and those who we lost in this pandemic. 

Memorial Day is a time to remember those who sacrificed for our country. The phrase often heard at this time is “All gave some and some gave all.” Our way of life is because of these brave men and women. To honor them, RISE Challenge Events is proud to present the second annual Rise Troops Challenge Oregon obstacle course race on Saturday, October 17. (rescheduled from originally being after Memorial Day)

What is the Rise Troops Challenge Oregon, and can I do it? Yes! All events are designed and created for any physical ability.

Rise Troops Events feature obstacles and challenges based on real world military obstacle course, testing, and training.  Conquer Fresh Obstacles and Challenges in a Unique, Grass-Roots feel-event! 

                       Do you have what it takes to be one of our troops?              

Only one way to find out! Get Hooah ready!

RISE Challenge Events is proud to partner with Braveheart Brewing, our after party sponsor, a veteran owned and operated brewery whose mission is a desire to give back to those who defend our freedom.

and can I do it?

Central Oregon has many races throughout the year and although they are unique in their own ways, they are nothing like this race.  To honor those who serve, all obstacles and challenges will be based upon actual military tactical skills and training challenges across the branches. 

Can you carry an ammo can to resupply everyone, carry your injured buddy to the evac chopper, and run the Braveheart Battlefield Gauntlet to victory? YES! You have it in you! All events are designed and created for any physical ability. They are attainable to the newbie and challenging for the fittest. We have training available to prepare you for success. You also have the option to go through the event as a team. In the team event, everyone can help each other through all obstacles and challenges.

Conquer the military style walls, embrace your grit and warrior spirit through challenges that include sandbags, military based fitness tasks, carrying, and crawling. Calm yourself and overcome fatigue to hit the air soft target. Also, don’t forget to look around and take in the beauty of the Central Oregon mountains!

RISE Troops Challenge also builds community. As racers finish, we often see them cheering on those still racing. It is about everyone accomplishing their goal and helping others. Past events have had veterans and active duty members out in force alongside those new to obstacle racing. Friendships are formed and the camaraderie is contagious. Finishers often head back out onto the course to encourage others. This is much bigger than just a race, fitness challenge, or competition. This is about facing challenges, rising above them, and setting new goals, all while honoring those who serve and sacrifice so much, and bonding with a like minded community. Of course we have fun, the pride of accomplishment, and memories to create along the way!
